The Gunpowder Plot in a storyboard. Humanities hwk.
In 1603 King James I became the king to the throne. He was a protestant which wasn't good because all catholics couldn't stand his ways of running the country.
Thomas Winter, Robert Catesby and Guy Fawkes met on the 20th May 1604 to plan the massively remembered gunpowder plot. This plan was going to destroy the Houses Of Parliament.
There first big plan was to travel under the River Thames but this failed because it had been flooded. This would not have been good because the gunpowder would be damp and useless for there plan.
For their second plan Thomas Percy rented out a cell under the Houses Of Parliament. This was where they were going to stay and store 36 barrels of gunpowder. Guy Fawkes was put in charge of lighting the gunpowder because his gang thought he was the right man for the job.
Lord Monteagle was sent a letter telling him to not go to the Houses of Parliament within the time period of the gunpowder plot plan. He gave the letter to Robert Cecil who was concerned about it. Then a troop of men went and searched the cell and unfortunately found Guy Fawkes.
Fawkes and his gang were sentenced to be hung and quartered in London. January 31st, 1606 was the day of the execution. But moments before this Fawkes jumped from a ladder resulting in breaking his neck and dying. All of his gang were killed through execution.
